Description

ET/C

With ET/C, Peter Downsbrough suggests a journey traveling through different cities. He reveals how important the urban matter is and how its perception is increased by frequency of traveling. The space is defined as a series of distinct environments, rather than as one single reality that would be fully understood from only one point of view.

FROM (TO)

The artist’s camera follows very closely the endless race of trucks on highways and explores the tension occurring between straightness and speed, mass and structure. Alternation of sound and silence gives tempo and inserted words on the screen such as « here » or « there » add some more abstract touch to this brief « road movie ».

Occupied

In Occupied, Peter Downsbrough shoots “la cité administrative”, a Brussels administrative complex built in 1958. The framing emphasizes the architecture of the site, while slow travelings reveal a deserted place. Filming this pure uninhabited architecture provides strong experience of time and space.
